State Parks Limit Surf Fishing Vehicle Access
During Winter Months
The Division of Parks and Recreation reminds surf-fishermen that some state park beaches will be closed to vehicles Dec. 31 through Feb. 28. This includes day use parking lots at Cape Henlopen State Parks Beach Plum Island and Delaware Seashore State Parks Conquest Road and Key Box Road.
Several areas will remain open for surf fishing, weather
and tides permitting. These include 24-hour access at Delaware Seashores
3Rs area and all of Fenwick Island State Park. Cape Henlopens
Gordons Pond area, Point Crossing, Herring Point Crossing and
Navy Crossing are open daily
There are some hardy anglers who like facing the elements and we try to accommodate them by allowing vehicles on the beach at the crossings that are most popular at this time of year, said Division Director Charles A. Salkin.
A Division brochure, Delaware State Parks Surf
Fishing, has complete beach access information. It is available
at state park offices, from surf fishing vehicle permit agents or
by calling the Divisions central office at 302-739-4702. Information
also is available at www.destateparks.com.
